Cardionics Training Media: CD & DVDs
Designed for use on a PC or Mac with all modern operating systems each CD and/or DVD contains a plethora of training content.
For example: The arrhythmia CD contains 30 arrhythmias. Each arrhythmia can be played as a moving strip. The demonstration mode shows the arrhythmia moving on a standard ECG grid with the explanation of the arrhythmia shown below the strip. This provides basic instruction about the characteristics of each arrhythmia. The pacemaker site, rhythm, rate, P waves, P-R interval, QRS complex, clinical significance and treatment are all described. The comparison mode permits any two arrhythmias to be shown on the screen simultaneously. If the user wishes to compare the difference between Second degree AV block, type I and type II, both arrhythmias can be seen on the screen simultaneously. Descriptions are still shown so that a complete explanation of each is available. Test Mode. There are three quiz modes – Novice, Advanced and the Instructor -selected quiz. In the Instructor-selected quiz, the instructor selects the content for the test. The program provides a “test number”. This number is given to the students. It is not necessary to have the program on a network in order for the Instructor-developed quiz to operate. A tutorial is provided on-screen for both the use of the program as well as the quiz.
